(PRESS RELEASE) ROCHESTER, NY — Rare & Forever, a brand of natural diamonds that are hand-selected for their highest quality and consistency, announced the launch of its new website, designed to bring transparency, authenticity, and trust to diamond buying. Rare & Forever is changing the diamond industry by offering authorized Rare & Forever retail jewelers more accurate, unbiased grading utilizing Artificial Intelligence (A.I.). Rare and Forever leverages a proprietary screening process to identify the Brown, Green, and Milky (BGM) hues that devalue a diamond and detract from its sparkle. This website will empower jewelers to show consumers exactly what they are buying and offer a completely transparent experience.

“Traditional diamond buying has been mystified by inauthentic sales processes, inaccurate and inconsistent grading reports, and a focus on paper versus beauty and quality,” said Chris Croteau, vice president sales and marketing at Rare and Forever, a division of RDI Diamonds Inc in New York. “Rare & Forever is changing the approach by providing authorized jewelers with new technology and services that give customers exactly what they want—transparent advice, knowledgeable expertise, and access to the world’s most accurately graded diamonds. Our enhanced website makes it easy for buyers to see the unbiased difference A.I. brings to grading and takes the friction out of the consultation process so customers know what they are getting and trust that it is superior to anything they can find on the Internet.”

Bringing Authenticity and Trust to Diamond Buying

The diamond industry has long focused customers’ attention on the Four Cs of a diamond—color, clarity, cut, and carat weight—represented in confusing grading reports and certificates. Nearly 99 percent of diamonds are graded based on human opinion and reports do not disclose imperfections such as BGM hues that detract from quality. This leads to inconsistent and inaccurate representations, confusing customers and causing mistrust. It also creates a challenge for brick-and-mortar retailers that are often competing against online jewelers selling diamonds based on inaccurate reports.

Rare & Forever shifts the diamond business back to local diamond experts–the businesses customers trust–providing customers access to the highest quality diamonds that are prescreened for imperfections and graded with A.I. technology. Purchasing from a local small business, rather than a large online retailer, enables buyers to view their diamond in person or via a virtual visit, provides diamond education from a knowledgeable, trustworthy source, and establishes a relationship for future jewelry purchases, repairs and cleanings.

Enhanced Rare & Forever Website Tells a New Story At the Counter

The Rare & Forever website reflects this brand new approach to diamond selling, helping consumers gain peace of mind and confidence in their diamond jewelry purchase.

Features of the website include:

  • Expert Consultations
    Consumers can enter their zip codes and be matched with the closest Rare & Forever retailer so they can see the diamonds in person (or through a virtual visit) and benefit from the knowledge and expertise that only a well-qualified, authorized Rare & Forever jeweler can provide.
  • Education–Beyond the 4C’s of Grading
    Animation to help consumers understand how A.I. technology is replacing antiquated grading methods, utilized by online sellers.
  • Live Rare Community
    Rare & Forever strives to create a community of new adopters that buy diamonds that are graded based on unbiased innovation. This community will help potential buyers identify idea concepts for proposals and for celebrating life’s most important milestones.

Rare & Forever diamonds offer an Upgrade for Life Program that guarantees buyers the value of their purchase and facilitates upgrade purchases. Purchases also come with the satisfaction of knowing Rare & Forever is a proud supporter of Diamonds Do Good, a global nonprofit organization whose mission is supporting programs that develop and empower people in natural diamond communities and sharing these stories of positive impact and C.U.R.E. Childhood Cancer Association.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
